More Chance of Seeing Mola

Did you know that the Mola (mola), or Oceanic Sunfish is a deeper dwelling fish? With your depth range extended to 30 metres you increase your chances of a sighting significantly. There’s nothing worse than missing out on a sighting of this rare and unique fish because you were limited to shallower depths.

Proximity to Nusa Penida and Lembongan Dive Sites

When you stay with Big Fish Diving you’re located in the heart of Lembongan which means easy access to dive sites. Unlike diving in Bali where long car journeys are required you can walk straight out of our resort and on to the beach where our purpose built dive boat awaits you.
